About Me

I was born and raised in Spokane, Washington and attended private school during my formative years which I felt gave me a good foundation, taught discipline and allowed me to discover my analytical strengths. I started public education in middle/high school and found my creative side in music and computer—both of which I pursued during my college years, making me the well-rounded person I (hope) I am today. Before coming to WSU, I worked several positions for service desks at large private institutions while obtaining various certifications and spent many years in the world of health care IT where I enjoyed knowing that I was indirectly helping to make a difference in the health of patients. When I joined the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, I was excited in the prospect that I would also be helping students and researchers attain their goals of being the future of health care.

In my spare time I like to…

I enjoy playing music (drums), listening to music, PC gaming and mountain biking.

Why WSU?

Contributing to academia and helping students and researchers attain their life and career goals was my primary motivation. Indirectly helping the community through WSU was a close second.
